My mum Nicky is the closest thing I have to a Superhero and even though we want to kill each other sometimes, I could not live without her. She is a mother, bestfriend, teacher, guardian angel and teddy bear all in one. She works hard every single day to provide for all of us and has to put up with me so she deserves more credit than she gets! I'm 20 years old and she still plaits my hair because I can't do it and comes with me to the doctors when I'm scared, so no matter how old you are, you'll always need your mum! Love ya Momma Bear!
My big sister is like my second mother. When mum tells me I'm making a stupid decision, Mels swoops in to confirm it for a second time! She always has my back no matter what, so if you hurt me be prepared for 'What did you just say about my little sister?!' She may be small but she's bloody feisty and would always start World War 3 to protect me if necessary! We have always been inseparable and still are but the only difference is we don't wear matching outfits anymore, unfortunately, her choice not mine...
Both of my nans are completely different but I love them both so much. Nanny Josie passed away recently and I will miss her gentle nature and cuddles, she was sweet and soft and I always felt at home whenever I saw her. Nanny Mo on the other hand is a woman who I think is very similar to myself - she has a fire in a belly and is one tough cookie. She makes me laugh everyday and I love our drives into town and DMC's over tea. She is a very strong woman and I admire her independence and attitude to life, she just keeps going no matter how she's feeling. I can always rely on her and can open up to her, she really is my best friend.
Zoe Sugg aka Zoella is my idea of career goals. I love how she is just your average, everyday girl but she managed to build an empire. I always watch her videos and follow her on social media because she is so relatable and genuinely cares about her followers, she knows that without them she would not be where she is today. She battles anxiety and is open and honest about it which is something else I love about her. I genuinely feel like I know her! I have a Zoella beauty makeup bag and am currently reading Girl Online, I'm Zoella obsessed! She always inspires me to continue to follow my dreams and I am so glad that I have a woman like her to look up to.
Okay, everybody knows I LOVE this girl. She has got me through heartbreak plenty of times and her songs mean so much to me, I absorb every single lyric. I love how she has become such an inspiring woman and a great role model for the younger generation. She means what she sings and she is able to become every girl ever because we have all been there and she understands us.
When it comes to fictional characters and ignoring the world, Carrie Bradshaw is my go to girl. I always binge on Sex and the City to cheer me up and Carrie is my favourite character. I can really relate to her passion for writing and fashion, and of course her relationship dilemmas! A lot of people don't like her but I personally love her. Her quotes always get my writers mind thinking, whether it's about the Mr. Bigs of the world or Manolo Blahniks!
Obviously there are many more women that I look up to but these are just a few because otherwise this post would never end :) As women we should all stand together and support one another so I hope you enjoyed reading this post about women who have inspired me :)
Who are some women that inspire you? I would love to know :) Happy International Women's Day everybody! Girl Power!
